It was seen coming. After the overwhelming success of ‘Super Mario Bros. The Movie’ and that ‘The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’ has become the main candidate to win the GOTY 2023 while it sweeps the store shelves, the rumors about an adaptation of the adventures of Link and company They are starting to gain strength.
Hit it, Zelda, hit it!
The hare has jumped on John Rocha’s video podcast The Hot Mic, where he made sure that the film by ‘The Legend of Zelda’ would be the next great production of the Nintendo film division at the hands of Illumination Entertainment; a rumor echoed by other weight media, and it is already known that when the river sounds…
The adaptation of the universe created by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka has been on the table for a long time. Before the premiere of the film of the mustachioed plumber, it already began to be commented that the people at Universal and Illumination were interested in working with other Big N licenses. If we go further, the producer and director of ‘Tears of the Kingdom’, Eiji Aonuma and Hidemaro Fujibayashi have already dropped that they would be “of course, interested” in seeing an animated version of the kingdom of Hyrule.
As for me, I don’t think, at all, that Illumination is the right home for a ‘The Legend of Zelda’ feature film. His work with ‘Super Mario Bros.’ it fell on me like a jug of cold water due to their concept of fanservice and comedy, and the use of easter-eggs over a good narrative work, and just thinking about what they can do with this epic, I start to tremble.
My kingdom for a multiverse in which there is a reality in which it is Studio Ghibli the project manager.
